Family Medicine Q&A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is a field of health care that addresses the acute and chronic needs of family members.  

Ample Health provides a range of patient-centered family medicine services for adults aged 20 and up, including diagnostic testing, customized treatment plans, and preventive care.

The team sees people in the office and also offers telehealth virtually through an online platform you can access on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

What family medicine services are available?

Ample Health provides comprehensive family medicine services like:

  • Sick visits
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Annual physicals
  • Preventive screenings
  • Women’s health services
  • Chronic disease management

The team offers hospital care and post-acute care services to help you recover fully from an illness, injury, or surgery. They also specialize in geriatrics to address the changing health needs of older adults.

You can also access resources to improve your overall quality of life. The team can recommend diet and exercise plans you can follow to stay fit and healthy. In addition, they can address any health challenges that increase your risk for chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), and heart disease.

What can I expect during my initial family medicine appointment?

At your first family medicine visit at Ample Health, the medical team spends time reviewing your personal and family medical histories, your existing health, and any concerns you have about your wellness.

They also complete a physical exam and evaluate details about your health, such as:

  • Weight
  • Height
  • Heart rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Body temperature
  • Joint flexibility
  • Muscle strength

Depending on your age and other risk factors for chronic disease, the providers may request blood work or other diagnostic testing to screen for underlying diseases, even if you don’t have symptoms.

You might also need testing if you schedule a sick visit for pain or other unusual symptoms or if you meet with the team for chronic disease management. Your provider creates a care plan to address existing health issues and can recommend strategies for improving your wellness and lowering your risk for additional complications. 

The team may recommend additional appointments in-office or through the telehealth platform to follow up on your progress with treatment.
